Do robots deserve rights?

This is a very good question. Perhaps we are already too late with wondering.

Prrrrrrr ... Aston Martin Vantage Red Bull Racing Edition

Keep the team signatures, just give me the car. I don't care if it's the V8 or the V12. I like my Aston Martins grey but this blue is okay.


Fluffy sneakers from Reebok

I can't decide if I think they're cute or scary. Let's say they're different, and expensive, $284, an only available at a select group of retailers.

Official name: Instapump Fury.


Interactive World City Populations Map 1950 - 2030

A very nice interactive world city populations map, past - future. I was surprised by the data from Amsterdam.

The Global Urban Transformation
This map visualises the radical transformation that has occurred across the globe in the last 60 years, from a 30% urban world in 1950, to a 54% urban world in 2015 and a predicted two-thirds urban world in 2050. In 1950 there were 740m people living in cities; there are now 4 billion, rising to a predicted 6.3b by 2050. The circles on the map are proportional to city populations in 1950, 1990, 2015 and 2030. Move your mouse over cities to explore their detailed dynamics. Data is from the UN World Urban Prospects.

A man and his 85kg turban

Wow! 85kg!! 645 meters of fabric! It takes 6,5 to 7 hours to tie the turban.

Bhai Baba Avtar Singh Mahakaal is a Sikh. For a Sikh the turban is very important. I'm impressed.
